The winner of “Top Papers Award” in 2018

The annual Top Papers Award has been established since 2015 by the editorial board of Nano Research and the Tsinghua University Press (TUP). This award is open to any scientists worldwide who have published papers in Nano Research during the two preceding years. After the JCR is released in each year, the winner will be determined by the Award Committee (Editors-in-Chief, Associate Editors, representatives from TUP) according to the citation in the latest year and the contribution of the papers. The winner list is announced in the annual Sino-US Forum on Nanoscale Science and Technology.


The awardees will receive a prize of RMB 10,000 and a certificate. The winner’s name and work will be featured in Nano Research and other media. This award can be granted to the same paper twice.


We are pleased to announce that the fourth Top Papers Awards are presented to the following papers.
